First off, I am new to the forum and have done quite a bit of reading thru the threads. Lots of great info here.
I currently run a JDM EJ20 Turbo. Looks to have been from a Legacy. It is in a dune buggy with all of the smog and stuff removed and running an EMS stinger ECU. It has a VF11 turbo and I might of damaged it when I spun a bearing. If I need to replace it, would a VF22 or 34 be a good choice? It sees mostly high RPM use while duning. I want to make plenty of HP but dont want a big turbo lag either. Outfront Motorsports who deals with these motors advertise them at 220hp. Looking for more HP with a heavy car...
I know my question might seem a little simple, but since my EJ20 is set up a little different and has a totally different use than a street car, I just want to make the right decision. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
VF22 would be low-end midrange punch and the VF34 would be mid-high. Either one would be great and just get it ported you'll be happy. BTW that buggy looks sick. I've seen an STI ATV but not a buggy, it looks awesome though...good luck.
Outfront has TD04's laying around by the dozens. Does the TD05 come with the same weird exhaust flange? What would the TD05 compare to in the IHI line?
Most of the Subaru powered rails are the higher end cars $40K + to start! Most of the guys buy them built, while I did mine myself. So there isnt a whole lot of info out there on them in this type of application. THe guys on some of the other webistes just dont know what to do since it doesnt have a CAI or cat back exhaust! lol!
How do you have the thing tuned? I mean, throwing a bigger turbo on there won't help you much if the ECU isn't adding more fuel. Also, bigger injectors and fuel pumps are mods we do to keep up with a larger turbo, not sure if you'd be in that situation too...
Kennedy and Hecker both make adapters and flywheels. Very simple install. The Bus tranny will hold up to it for a while and then needs some special upgrades. But its a popular tranny and you can get them built off the shelf...dozens and dozens of gear ratios too!
